Palm kernel can earn Osun foreign exchange – Gov. Oyetola

Governor Gboyega Oyetola  of Osun has assured people  of the state that their welfare and security will be the driving force of his administration.
Governor Oyetola gave the assurance during an engagement programme organised  by  the state’s Civic Engagement Office for Palm kernel producers in Osun State.
The Governor, who was represented by his Special Adviser on Civic Engagement, Mr Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, said that various developmental projects his administration had achieved since inception were products of commitments to the service of the people.
He said that his administration had performed creditably well in the areas  of health, education, infrastructure, youth empowerment,  free monthly food for vulnerables, prompt payment of salaries,  pensions, among others.
The Governor noted that  contrary to the believe that many second term governors usually relapse into non-performances, he had made covenant with God to keep to his oath of office.
Governor Oyetola pointed out that palm kernel as a product had industrial value globally, saying his administration would work with stakeholders in the sector to see how the product could earn Osun foreign exchange and return value for traders and farmers alike.
In his remarks,  the Chairman of the palm kernel producers, Chief  Abdulganiyu Ogundele, commended the governor for the giant stride he had accomplished  in the  provision of infrastructure across the state.
He, however, appealed to the governor to assist members of the association with more soft loans to boost their businesses.
He also promised that the association would support his re-election for the continuation of the good work.
